Hey hey!! Can you guys believe Thanksgiving is next week? Then Christmas is only four weeks after that!? Are we dreaming? This year is definitely flying by.

This past weekend me and four of my girlfriends went to a make your own sushi class.

We all agreed the location was a bit odd. It was in a kind of run down apartment complex so none of us were too sure what to expect.  We knew it would either be really cool or a total let down. Luckily, it was awesome!

I don’t want to give you too many details of how we made each roll. I feel like that’s unfair to the company putting on the event, but I will show you pictures of all the deliciousness.

The first roll we learned how to make with rice on the inside.

The second roll we learned how to make it with rice on the outside.

And the third roll we were given all the ingredients they had on hand and told to get creative. We could make either style of roll, use as many or few ingredients as we wanted, and focus on presentation. It was a little competition to see who could make the best roll.

Would you believe me if I told you I won?

Yes? Good, because I totally did!! How awesome is that? I scored a free pass to any of the other classes they offer. My friends, as well as the other classmates, were told they get 50% off any of the other classes just for attending this one. We are in debate if we want to go to the cupcake decorating one or the wine painting one.

Overall we had a complete blast.

Lots of laughs and good memories made! Oh and don’t worry, it was BYOB so I made sure I brought sparkling grape juice to join in on the fun :)


Sunday was another big day. We found out the sex of our second child!

We’re having a….!!!!


Another boy. That makes 5 grandsons for my side of the family and NO girls. Holy freaking crap.

We’ve decided we’re all done with kids so there are no girls in my future, but my sister still wants one more child. My fingers are crossed and double crossed that she has one. We need a little princess to spoil in this family!

Thank you so much for all the private messages, texts, and facebook comments about our recent news. We are beyond excited (and nervous!) for this next chapter in our lives.

Moms with two or more kids – I wanna hear both sides. What was the easiest and hardest part about having another baby?


The Retro Monsters are back! Count Chocula, Boo Berry and Franken Berry cereals are hitting the shelves at Target in their retro packaging and they’ve brought Monsters snack items for you to enjoy as well.

Perfect for nostalgic cereal fans and Halloween lovers, Monsters cereals and snacks are fun for the whole family.

The cereal boxes even come with a cut-out mask on the back of the box! #bonus

Gavin is still a little too young to be enjoying sugary cereal, and I’ve had those terrible food aversions with this babe too. But, my husband has been enjoying them quite thoroughly :)

Pick up your boxes just in time for Halloween to share with the goblins greeting you at your doors :)

What are you and your family members dressing up as for Halloween?
